Bledisloe Park

A cool place for a walk or a bike ride - literally! With plenty of shaded native bush and a swimming hole to help you beat the heat on a hot Palmy day.

Join the native birds as the path through this park journeys through one of Palmerston North’s native bush remnants. It also links up with the Turitea Stream, where babbling water, birdsong and fresh bush scent combine to create an oasis of calm.

Take your togs because the stream and swimming hole are a perfect place for a swim.

If you’re keen to get your heart rate up, there are three sets of stairs for you to run or walk up. The trail can be done in 30 minutes from Tennent Drive, but you can make it about two hours if you start at the Summerhill shops and set out along the Turitea Walkway, which runs through Bledisloe Park.
